My Book Haul from the National Book Store’s #BookBingeBazaar

It was pure bookworm’s heaven last Friday and all throughout the weekend as the biggest bookstore in the country had their first ever Book Binge Bazaar! Books were priced at 75 ($1+), 175 ($3+) and 275 ($5+) pesos only as its most expensive! I mean, whoa!

As expected, bibliophiles from all over the metro flock to SM Megatrade Hall (including yours truly) and got every (well, just a few) single books on their wish lists! It actually took five hours for me to scour the whole bazaar for the books that I’ve wanted!

Here are the titles I was able to score!

and these additional three!

I am super excited to read and reread all of these!!! ❤

My January 2018 Book Haul!

I promised myself that I would try minimizing my book purchases this year and be more vigilant on book sale and promos! Hah! So for this month, I’ve acquired five books which got me busy for the first three weeks of the year. I was so engrossed with The House of the Scorpion* whose review I just posted earlier tonight as well as the disappointing I’ll Give You The Sun*.

I am currently reading Number The Stars by Lois Lowry and once I finished this, I’d try to reread one of my favorite books in 2015 – Wolf by Wolf* so I could start Blood by Blood as soon as possible! So exciting!

I bought The House of the Scorpion from PowerBooks and the rest are from Fully Booked. Big thanks to Fully Booked for carrying Ryan Graudin’s Wolf by Wold Duology! ❤

My Book Haul: September 2017!

This is my first time sharing my book haul from a certain period of time and this one is just from last month! I often buy books from thrift shops, book sales and from the three leading book stores in the country – the National Book Store, Fully Booked and Powerbooks. Mostly, from National Book Store because they are more varied and they tend to be way cheaper for some reason! Haha! So without further ado, let me present to you these titles!

 

From this haul, I’ve already read three of the series via ebooks (The 5th Wave, The Maze Runner series, and the Reckoners)  but it’s really nice to have copies which I’ve got for very affordable prices!

I’ve scored Another Day by David Levithan for P299 only which is also the most expensive from this haul but considering it’s regularly priced at 499 on paperback and I’ve the hardbound copy… I know right?

The other titles if you cannot read them on the image are:
For P100
1. The Best of the Morning Rush Top 10 with Chico, Delamar and Gino Volume 3

For P199 each from the National Book Store
Hardbound Editions

2. Five Kingdoms Series (1-4) – Brandon Mull

2. Steelheart (The Reckoners, Book 1) – Brandon Sanderson
3. The Bane Chronicles – Cassandra Clare

5. The Scorch Trials (The Maze Runner, Book 2) – James Dashner

For P99 each from the National Book Store
1. The Lord of Opium (Matteo Alacran, Book 2) – Nancy Farmer
2. Struck by Lightning – Chris Colfer

For P39 each from Chapters & Pages
1. Mystic River – Dennis Lehane
2. The Vineyard – Barbara Delinsky

I’ve always wanted to read a Delinsky novel because I’ve been seeing her name since I started reading books from Belva Plain and Rosamunde Pilcher – I’m pretty excited, hopefully this first one would a great experience!

So that sums up my book haul post! I’ve already started with Struck by Lightning and it’s already looking great!
